Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome (MALs) is a rare vascular condition in which the median arcuate ligament compresses the celiac trunk which presents as a constellation of symptoms including nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and post-prandial epigastric pain. The treatment of this condition is surgical release of the celiac artery by dividing the median arcuate ligament. Here we present our technique for robotic median arcuate ligament release in a patient with a classic presentation of median arcuate ligament syndrome. In this video we describe the technical details, key steps, and pitfalls of the operation and discuss the current literature on the subject.
